Microsoft’s CEO Satya Nadella gave three leadership qualities he looks for in an interview with Quartz At Work. Nadella had recently visited his alma mater, University of Chicago and where the University’s Dean for the Booth School of Business also interviewed him. In his talk with the Dean, he gave sage leadership advice that could be integrated into life experiences as well.
According to a recap on the school’s website, Nadella said that a lot of the MBA students were, like him, fairly experienced and knowledgeable before they had even started their studies. What he said school could offer them, among other things, is an opportunity to cultivate leadership traits, including the three attributes he said Microsoft looks for in job candidates.
As it happens, much of his guidance serves as decent life advice, too.
